26 of 26 people found the following review helpful By Rolf Dobelli TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 1 Mar. 2004
Format: Paperback
Author Kerry Gleeson, a specialist in white collar efficiency and productivity, describes a do-it-now program for becoming more organized and effective. As might be expected, this is a well-organized book. Gleeson outlines some familiar approaches to getting organized, such as setting up an office system that deals with paperwork effectively. The book becomes more informative when it discusses some less familiar organizational techniques, such as planning chunks of time to deal with similar tasks, using technology and establishing routines for maintaining your organizational system. The book’s major strength is the detail it offers about setting up files and systems, and following through on organizational initiatives. We enjoyed Gleeson’s case histories of reorganizing various offices. She uses many of her basic principles in common sense ways — and the messes she repairs will make you feel like the top of your desk may not be hopeless after all.

This is a fantastic book - the best of its type I have read. Gleeson writes in a sane, sensible way about how to organise yourself to get more done. His solution? Do It Now. Before you say: "That's obvious" how many of you do it consistently? Not many, and the reason, from my experience, is that we are rarely organised to do it other than later!! Gleeson fills in the gaps by showing you how to physically organise yourself and your workspace so that you can put the Do It Now principle into regular and continuing operation. Trust me - this book is a lifesaver!!

This book really inspired me to clean up my act at work. I always say that I have better things to think about than where is the proper place to put a particular item...but I followed the instructions in this book and got everything in order and it has definitely made me more efficient, as well as improving my professional image. I've been following the other advice and in just the first week of putting it into practice I have received a lot of compliments from the people I work with/for, which has inspired me to work even more on improving my personal efficiency through this program!

Format: Paperback
My husband bought me two time management books for Christmas. I am the most disorganised person in the world, and to cut to the chase - my life had changed by page nine! Really, this book is aimed at people who are struggling at work, or even those who want to improve their work load. But let me assure you - it can be adapted to any situation. I am a stay at home mum with two small children and i am in shock that i actually got to the bottom of the washing pile, for probably the first time in five years! Not only this - but i now have less housework to do than my perfect mother-in-law!!! I am no longer embarrassed if someone calls round unanounced. Funnily enough the other book my husband bought me was specifically for manic mums. I didn't like it, but this is seriously one of the best reads ever. I now have a queue of people waiting to borrow this book, although i think i've now got a few birthday presents lined up with this book - as i fear if i lend it out - i'll never see it again!! Kerry's writing style is very easy to read and incredibly motivating, and very well written. Finally - the genuius "do it now!" strategy has back fired on my husband: When i ask him to do something, i never realised how often he put it off for later. "Do it now!" I say to him (it works btw!!) - it also works very well with my children too.

This is the best time management book I 've ever read. I have read over 10 books on time management. This book is the last, and probably the very last I need to buy to improve my personal efficiency. "Do it Now" is a bloody work, but it works! I have put a big big label on my desk diary to remind myself to do it now.
